The past two years have been pretty intense for A$AP Rocky and the A$AP Mob.

They lost the founding member A$AP Yams but still want to remember his life in a big way. Rocky is holding an A$AP Yams Day celebration in New York and is hoping for one big showing of love.

"I wanna see '1 Train,'" said Rocky in his interview with Ebro in the Morning.

Rocky was hyping fans up by talking about the curation which he said is going to be crazy. When asked who was in-charge of the event, Rocky said "everyone, Yams in-charge."

Rocky stated that he wanted everyone to go have safe, happy and high. Ebro asked about the mention of "1 Train" and asked if it was really going to go down at the show. He and Rocky ran down the list of artists on the track which included, Joey Bada$$, Kendrick Lamar, Action Bronson, Danny Brown, Yelawolf and Big K.R.I.T.

but Rocky later one revealed he was using that song as an analogy of how he wants Yams Day to go down. He is calling for a unified hip-hop where everyone respects and supports each other.

The experience of the event along with the memory of Yams will live on through a book titled, "Tweet Like Yams." You can check out the interview in it's entirety below.
